My Sketch Challenge card (natural light)
My Challenge card (craft lamp on) shows sparkle!
Good Morning Ladies,
It's Monday again, so you know what that means.........Sketch Challenge time!!!!
This week I created a quite simple sketch for you, I tried to design one that would work well for any occasion, I think this fits that brief, you could use a patterned paper or just emboss a piece of card for the bottom, you could make it into a handbag even (with the top section as the flap of the bag) , I think I am going to make a Christmas card with this design later too. My main rule is that you must have fun!!
I am excited to see what you can all come up with. You don't even need dies for this sketch, you can stamp your sentiment.
I am trying to make an effort to do more stamping, I love stamping, sadly it isn't one of my strongest skills, I have been watching YouTube videos about the "Misti" tool, I just wish it wasn't so expensive, I would have one straight away otherwise! Have any of you got a "Misti" ? I did see a few videos on making your own version, sadly DIY isn't one of my strongest skills either! Maybe I could get Paul to have a go?!
Actually I bet Alan (Margaret's husband) could knock us one up in no time, with a bit of input from Sue....... He's one of those amazing chaps that can knock you up anything if you explain the basics, I'm sure this wouldn't tax him too much. Sue....can you ring your Dad??? If he could just start with one for me, then he can start on the next 15 or so, I'm sure everyone would want one, we'd have to rename it though.
'Misti' = 'Most incredible Stamp tool invented', I did think of "Palmers incredible stamp tool invention " but "Pisti" doesn't have the same 'ring' (Palmer is Margaret and Alan's Surname)!! I welcome your suggestions!
I'm off to play with some new goodies I have received, did any of you order anything from Sue's Hochanda shows on the weekend? I bought a couple of the 'Frame' style embossing folders and a Christmas Gemini die, from Ben at SETcraft though not Hochanda! I have been looking for a nice corner embossing folder for a while, I would like a general one too, the two I ordered were Christmas, they are smaller ones too. I must get a start on making my Christmas cards, I don't usually start until November, I then run out of time an end up buying them, I only make cards for friends and some family, some don't understand the time, effort and expense that goes into making a card.
Sending love a huge hugs to all of you, especially to those that are under the weather.
